In 2009, I was commissioned by the Action Against Hunger – USA to do a photo booklet on their blanket feeding program in Mandera, northeastern Kenya. Five days into what was supposed to have been a 10-day assignment, we were forced to leave when three of our companions were abducted. (Read my first person account here.). ACF-USA ceased operations in Mandera shortly thereafter.
Below is the photo booklet I wrote and designed based on the interviews and pictures I took in the short time while in Mandera. I had posted this in my old website. Click to see a clearer copy of the booklet here.
